An Unexpected (and Pleasant) Surprise

 If you've never tried to create a graduated passage with transparent paints, going from light (or in this case, medium) to dark, let me tell you: it is no picnic in the park. I was prepared to spend another hour or two brushing, brushing, brushing, until the strokes disappeared and the darkest night sky at the top blended into the lighter one close to the horizon, but by some miracle it's finished! Of course, right now it's wet, so I may feel differently once it dries, but for now, I am a happy camper.
